She’s the voice behind two of the year’s biggest number 1s in the UK so it was only a matter of time before she decided to strike out on her own. Brit sensation Jess Glynne first came to our attention after she provided the soulful vocals for Clean Bandit’s monster hit ‘Rather Be’ and followed it up by adding her magic to Route 94’s ‘My Love’ so the stage is now set for her debut single, the house-infused ‘Right Here’. HRRRNNK. ALARM POP.
Produced by Gorgon City – who scored their own Top 10 hit earlier this year with ‘Ready For Your Love’ – ‘Right Here’ very much rides the wave of the house vibes that have been taking over the charts of late. A crisp, minimal beat and groovy bass drives the song with an instantly catchy trumpet hook while our old pop friend, the “oh oh oh” vocal chant, tags along for the ride. The accompanying video also features dalmatians and Jess sitting atop a throne which appears to be made out of a hedge. To be fair, she’s more than cool enough to pull it off.
‘Right Here’ is more of a grower than an instant pop sugar rush but it’s a confident start for the talented singer and we’re definitely interested to see what else she has up her sleeve! What do you guys think? Has Jess got another smash on her hands?
